lyrics

Rain, a rain like fire,
falls in the glazed sand
Ruins, of this sad species
buried by it's own hand
Gained, all the knowledge
good intentions paving the way
To hell, as sincerity
turns into shades of grey

Consume, acquire and purchase
the wheels of progress keep turning, turning
Round, your hard earned gold now
into the hands of the few
Distract, make them lenient
put on a thrilling display
So, we won't mind at all when
people's worth on money be weighed

-------------------------------
Filled with desire, building ever higher
Modern Day Renaissance Man
Crown of creation, proud warring nations
Modern Day Renaissance Man

Knowledge and power, used only to devour
Modern Day Renaissance Man
Petty and jealous, combined with overzealous
Modern Day Renaissance Man
-------------------------------

Greed, hybris and indifference
led us down this path
Down the road where there’s no
redemption to be had

All, of our precious fortune
all of the might and the feats
All, to be laid in front of
the cockroaches’ feet


So deaf to Nature’s call,
And more we still will haul,
We try to grasp it all,
To our downfall
